I caught up with tonight's conducter, Iván Fischer, after the pre-prom talk where he had the audience (predominantly children) hanging on his every word! Back in Hungary with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, they call their family concert "cocoa concerts", because they have a cup of cocoa for every attendee afterwards - sounds like a great idea in the winter!
A little known fact about Iván Fischer is that he and I share a birthday. You learn something new every day..! Listen to our conversation.

Listen!
